Subject: Monday Classes and Activities at Hyde Park Campus Canceled Due to Threat
The University was informed by FBI counterterrorism officials today (Sunday) that an unknown individual posted an online threat of gun violence against the University of Chicago, specifically mentioning “the campus quad” on Monday morning at 10 a.m. Based on the FBI’s assessment of this threat and recent tragic events at other campuses across the country, we have decided in consultation with federal and local law enforcement officials, to exercise caution by canceling all classes and activities on the Hyde Park campus through midnight on Monday. All non-medical faculty, students and non-essential staff are asked not to come to the Hyde Park campus on Monday, or to remain indoors as much as possible if they are on campus. Students in College Housing are asked to stay indoors and await direct communication from College Housing Staff.
In response to the threat, the University will have an increased police and security presence on and around campus, including police personnel with visible weapons and other additional measures. University security personnel are keeping in close contact with the FBI, which is continuing to investigate the threat.
According to the police report, the man who threatened to attack the University of Chicago Monday morning planned to target white males and wanted to do his part to “rid the world of white devils.”
The threat apparently came in the form of a comment on the website WorldStarHipHop. In the comment, the commentator threatened to avenge the death of Laquon McDonald, the black man who was shot and killed by a Chicago police officer, sparking protests across the greater Chicago area.
“This is my only warning. At 10 AM Monday morning, I’m going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with an M-4 carbine and two desert eagles, all fully loaded. I will execute approximately 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time McDonald was killed,” he wrote.
“I will then die killing any number of white policeman in the process. This is not a joke. I am [sic] to do my part and rid the world of white devils. I expect you do the same,” he continued.
A 21-year-old college student has been arrested for threatening to “execute aproximately (sic) 16 white male students and or staff” at the University of Chicago, and then “any number of white policemen,” to avenge the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald, according to a criminal complaint and affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago.
Jabari R. Dean, of Chicago, was arrested Monday and charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois announced. According to the affidavit, Dean wrote in an online post that he planned to show up at the University of Chicago’s campus quad Monday morning armed with an assault rifle and two semi-automatic pistols and would “do my part to rid the world of the white devils.”
31 year old Joseph ‘Joey’ Meek of Red Bank, South Caroina was arrested by the FBI in connection with the Charleston church shooting that left 9 dead at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Joey Meeks opened up his home to Dylann Roof in the weeks before the June killings of nine African-Americans in a Charleston church. Meek told reporters in late June that on June 10, while he, Roof and their friend Christon Scriven were getting drunk on vodka, Roof announced plans to carry out a mass shooting seven days later at the College of Charleston. Should Meek’s have told the authorities and not just blamed it on the alcohol? Meek says that he did not take Dylann Roof serious, hmm … how do you feel know? If Meek is charged with and convicted of making false statements, he could be facing up to 5 years in prison. However, that number rises to 8 years when the false statements concern certain types of crimes, including international or domestic terrorism.
Agents picked up Joseph “Joey” Meek Jr., 21, of Red Bank, while he was at work Thursday afternoon, his girlfriend, Lindsey Fry, told The State newspaper shortly afterward.
Meek called her on his cell phone as it was happening, Fry said.
“He just said, ‘They want to talk to me, but I think I’m going to jail,’” she said.
Meek lives in a trailer in Red Bank with his mother, two brothers and Fry, who is 19.
Meek was informed in an Aug. 6 letter from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbia that he was a “potential target” of the federal criminal investigation into the slayings of nine parishioners at the historic “Mother” Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.
The letter stated that Meek was under investigation for possible misprision and allegedly making false statements to law enforcement. Both crimes are felonies.
47 Year Old Deputy Darren H. Goforth Shot & Killed “Execution Style” in Houston, Texas Area (Update: Suspect Arrested and in Custody)
POLICE OFFICERS LIVES MATTER!!!
47 year old Harris County Sheriff Deputy Darren H. Goforth was shot and killed “execution-style” as he fueled his patrol car in the Houston area of Texas. What the hell is going on in this country? Thanks to the racial division and poison spread from the Obama White House and the DOJ, and the so-called Black Lives Matter crowd, we know have the beginnings of a race war. As Deputy Goforth was pumping gas a man walked up behind him and shot him, killing him instantly. The POS scumbag thug then stood over him and shot Gosforth some more, even after the officer was dead. Goforth is survived by his wife, who works as a school teacher, and two children, ages 12 and 5.
Rest in Peace
You cannot even imagine the anger and rage that I have towards these lawless thugs that would do such a heinous act. Hopefully this POS will be captured soon and seeing that it is Texas will be put to death like he rightfully should. HOW IS THIS NOT A HATE CRIME? This is the definition of a hate crime. This thug needs to be put down like a rabid animal. Folks, it does not get any more heinous than this. It also does not get any more cowardice. This thug shot a police officer when his back was turned, really? What a brave soul you are. Hopefully you will get coming to you all that you rightfully deserve.
Emotional Press Conference regarding Deputy Gogorth’s death … “the suspect will be caught and will be brought to justice”
A man shot a uniformed sheriff’s deputy “execution-style” while he fueled his patrol car in the Houston area, killing him instantly, authorities said.
Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47, was returning to his car after pumping gas Friday night.
The gunman walked up from behind him and opened fire for no apparent reason, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said.
When Goforth fell to the ground, the gunman stood over him and shot him some more, authorities said. He died at the scene.
“He was literally gunned down in what appears to be an unprovoked, execution-style killing,” Hickman said. “I have been in law enforcement for 45 years, I have never seen anything this cold-blooded.”
‘He did not say anything’
The gunman gave no indication of his motive. He drove away after the shooting in a red Ford Ranger, authorities said. A manhunt is underway to find him.
According to reports, the suspects mother called the Harris County Sheriff’s office after learning her son may have been involved in the shooting. The suspect was arrested at his mother’s home.
A man “believed to be the alleged gunman” in the killing of a uniformed Houston-area sheriff’s deputy was in custody and being questioned Saturday morning, Sgt. William Kennard of the Texas Department of Public Safety told CNN.
No charges have been filed against the man, Kennard said. The man’s name wasn’t given.
It was the man’s mother who called the Harris County Sheriff’s Department about her son, Kennard said. “All the information she had heard led to him.”
For deputy Darren Goforth, who was shot and killed at a Texas gas station Friday, law enforcement was “his calling,” his brother-in-law told ABC News.
Goforth, a Harris County Sheriff’s deputy, was filling up his patrol car at a gas station near Houston when a man approached him from behind and shot him several times, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
“He wanted to spend his whole life in it once he got in it,” Allison, 46, said. “He really felt the brotherhood in the community … that’s what he loved to do.
“He was kind of born for it,” Allison said.
Goforth is survived by his wife, who works as a school teacher, and two children, ages 12 and 5, Allison said.
“He was the rock in that family,” Allison said through tears. “The kids loved him.
“I didn’t have a brother… when they got together he was like the only other brother in my family,” Allison said.
Goforth “never got mad at anybody,” Allison said. “He was just a giving individual.”
21 Year Old Dylann Roof, Charleston Church Shooter Arrested in North Carolina … Confessed to Police that He Wanted to Start a Race War
Charleston Church Shooter Arrested in North Carolina …
21 year old Dylann Roof was arrested Thursday in Shelby, North Carolina after police were tipped off by a motorist. Roof is accused of murder nine people, six woman and three men, including 41 year old Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney, a Democratic member of the state Senate. The heinous mass murder took place at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
Roof was arrested without incident Thursday in Shelby, North Carolina, after a motorist spotted him and tipped police, and waived extradition back to South Carolina, where he was held pending a bond hearing, Charleston Police said.
His previous record includes misdemeanor drug and trespassing charges. He wasn’t known to the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama, and it’s not clear whether Roof had any connection to the 16 white supremacist organizations operating in South Carolina, but he appears to be a “disaffected white supremacist,” based on his Facebook page, said the center’s president, Richard Cohen.
Dylan Roof is scheduled to be in court at 2 PM on Friday.
Dylann Roof has confessed to authorities to shooting and killing nine people this week at a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, two law enforcement officials said Friday.
One of the officials said that Roof, who is white, told investigators that he wanted to start a race war.
He himself bought the .45-caliber handgun used in the shooting last April at a Charleston gun store, according to the two officials. Earlier, a senior law enforcement official had indicated that Roof’s father bought him a Glock firearm for his birthday.
Three men have been arrested, a 21-year-old, a 15-year-old and another person is in custody, following the unprovoked assault on a MetroLink commuter in St. Louis. Mo. The incident occurred last week as a white man was minding his own business on his commute home when he was assaulted by two men who police say had made reference to Michael Brown, the teen who was killed at the hands of Ferguson police that began the fraudulent movement of “hands up, don’t shoot”. So in other words, these black men purposely, willfully and with full intention attacked and assaulted a white man because of this color. That sounds like a hate crime to me. Where is Attorney General Eric Holder running to this white commuters defense of his civil rights?
Don’t all lives matter?
VIDEO of ASSAULT
Police have three people in custody in an attack last week in which a MetroLink rider was beaten after one of several men asked him about the Michael Brown “situation.”
A police source confirmed Monday evening that a 21-year-old and a 15-year-old have been arrested and another person is in custody who is cooperating with the investigation.
A video posted to Facebook appears to show the attack March 23 on the 43-year-old man, and MetroLink released surveillance images of suspects.
Police said the victim, who is white, was punched and kicked by three black men, one of whom had made the reference to the teen killed in Ferguson by a police officer Aug. 9.
Just a note to the 3 arrested individuals … Officer Darren Wilson was never indicted by a grand jury in the shooting of the so-called Gentle Giant, store robbing punk Michael Wilson and Attorney General Eric Holder dropped all civil rights charges against him as well. Hands Up, Don’t Shoot never happened.
